The San Luis Obispo County Chapter of the National SCORE organization has been awarded client responsibility of the Santa Maria Valley region. The 50 year old non-profit organization offers a variety of always free-to-clients services, specializing in mentoring start-up companies, entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Becoming a SCORE volunteer and using your business experience to support the business community is an extremely satisfying and productive way to make a difference. Clients who receive SCORE mentoring are 5 times more likely to succeed than the national average for new start-up firms.
Our Santa Maria Valley based counseling office is now open for business within the MIYB building and our roster of Santa Maria based SCORE clients is growing rapidly.This is a great opportunity to share your experience, wisdom and success in business with those in need of assistance. Our SCORE mentors typically have broad business management experience, either as current or former small business owners and/or detailed career experience in particular disciplines such as finance, marketing, engineering or operations.

We are particularly interested in increasing our ranks of women mentors and those men and women who represent the diverse ethnic heritage of the Santa Maria Valley area. Please join our effort to foster economic growth by helping create new businesses, adding jobs and increasing revenues and profits.
